. >> bill: all right. so once again, mr. obama didn't explain what happened on 9/11 in libya. once again he said his administration is investigating. but so much, so much misinformation has been but the out there by the obama administration you would think that six weeks after the attack some kind of clarity could be put forth by the president he doesn't have to do it because the press is not pushing him. brian williams, one of the few journalists mr. obama is talking with, had a chance to ask him some tough questions, mr. williams passed. >> the assessment of your intelligence community as we stand here is that it was a spontaneous terrorist attack. were you happy with what you were able to learn as it unfolded? it went on for several hours. >> well, as i have said, brian, we're going to do a full investigation, obviously when four americans are killed, you know, you have to do some soul searches in terms of making sure that all our systems are where they need to be. and that's what we're going to find out. but, who what i'm confident about is that we will be able to figure out who perpetr
just before the storm. right? that was colin powell. president obama today actually released an ad highlighting the colin powell endorsement. >> will you endorse president obama? >> yes. when he took over, we were in one of the worst recessions we had seen in recent times. close to a depression. and i saw over the next several years stabilization come back in the financial community. housing is starting to pick up. the president saved the auto industry, and the actions he has taken with respect to protecting us from terrorism have been very, very solid. >> the reason colin powell's was the most eagerly anticipated endorsement of this election is because his endorsement of barack obama in 2008 was seen as being a consequential thing in terms of the obama lead over mccain in '08 and how the election was going to turn out. also more importantly, colin powell is probably the single republican in the country who has the most gravitas and credibility with crossover voters, independent voters and with generally speaking nonideological people who admire his leadership and his judgment. eve
? and right now, six weeks, we're not getting -- we're getting stonewalled. his answers, barack obama's answers are stonewalled. and all i do is break it down. he he has got to know as i said in the talking points, who told carney and rice to say what they say. he has to know. wait a minute, have you been in this business a long time, okay? all right. is there any excuse for that question not being asked by two highly paid news people, schieffer and williams? any excuse? >> why wasn't it asked by governor mitt romney. >> bill: we already run into that. >> romney -- he is the president with all due respect. who gave these officials these marching orders. >> bill: romney has his own reasons for not asking it but it's the job of schieffer and williams to ask it and they didn't. >> three things. number one, there is a legitimate scandal on why there wasn't more security for the ambassador in benghazi. why the intelligence failed to predict that this militia was going to carry out a deadly attack. that's one scandal. then there is the attack itself. i think it's going to be very very diffi
obama during his administration. have you been very kind to him, all right? is there any excuse in the world for the president at this point in time not answering fundamental questions about this situation? not holding a press conference and answering fundamental questions? >> we are 10 days from what everyone is calling. >> bill: are you going to make an excuse for him. >> we are 10 days from what everyone is calling the most important election of our time. do you realistically believe for example the house oversight committee for the republicans would be requesting truth justice in the american way we are seeking political points. it is a very difficult time. what we he answer at the press conference. >> bill: well, he knows. >> is he going to tell the cia's mission in libya? >> no. is he going to say this is who told jay carney this. this is who told susan rice. this this is what i think happened there heads are going to roll. >> i spoke with three republic senators yesterday, including senator jim inhofe the republic of oklahoma who said the senate foreign relations committe
right now shows president obama ahead by two and in nevada president obama ahead by 2.7. then later in the night at 11:00 p.m. and then 1:00 a.m., we'll have california, hawaii, idaho, oregon, washington, and then the last poll closing in alaska. unless this is a very strange night, those races will be interesting for governors races and senate and house races and state issues, but not necessarily for the presidency. unless things go very, very digital differently than expected to go. this is how your election viewing is going to unfold hour by hour on tuesday night. if you just exclude the states for the presidential race where everybody pretty much knows exactly how it's going to go and just the states where there is some question as to what's going to happen, here is a clip and save thing for you about these states. the battlegrounds. all right? states that you know are going to be important and everybody thinks they're going to be close. these are the states everybody is going to be watching on tuesday night. each of these states, as you know, has a top elections official. and e
voted for barack obama last time and get them to come out and vote for us this time. >> all right. so maybe mitt romney is also taking a two prong way, he's for early voting, too, or maybe he has a bit of romnesia about what his closing strategy is supposed to be. whatever the case, the two strategies that they've chosen tells us this. president obama has eight days to win this election. mitt romney has nine. because he's betting on a big turn out on election day. listen, romney may be on to something given that in 2008, there were states that then candidate obama lost on election day. but he carried them because of his campaigns early voting strategy. right now polls show that in key states like ohio, president obama leads mitt romney 2:1 or 60% to 30% with early voters. remains to be seen what strategy will seal the deal and who will win this election. but come election day, it will be clear whether the right strategy was galvanize voters early, early, early, or just hope they show up on election day. let's go to our table of experts. we -- look, this is it. 2450es are the final day
's right harris. romney campaign believes that obama cam pawn is on defense. and so we see the president trying to really his best got a new adout hitting romney and claims she is flip flopping and then something we haven't heard the president do. talking about the broader tax cut that governor romney talked about and disputing the figures. they talked about that before. this time he zero in on taxes in massachusetts. and a bither joke thrown it. >> there were higher fees for gas. there were higher gas for milk and higher fees for blund people who neepeded to get a certificate that they were blind . he raised feas for a birth certificate which would have been expensive for me. and the romney camp is pushing back and said the feas were raised to balance the state budget and as governor he cut other taxes. and the romney camp is angry about the birther things and rolling stone mag wreen where the president used profanity to describe romney. this is it a snaul campaign and instead of the president doing uplifting ret ruck. respiratory new hampshire is a small state but beautiful. and the pr

. people s that. in the mayor had to say, well, i neil: all right. you might have heard, and just going to put him off. i did not want to make the leap that he is not an obama fan. my next guest is. he is a former ceo. the political vernacular, a surrogate as they call you. and obama circuit. good to have you. >> that is what they say. neil: that is what they say. what do you think of this economy's latest jobs report? the president saying it is a great, promising sign that things are getting better. mitt romney in ohio tonight saying, no, it isn't. it is the best that we could do. you knknow, another thing comin. what do you say? >> well, first thing is i think it is a sign the steady progress. we are going in the right direction. not as fast as any of us would like, but it is steady progress. i think it is also really important to look at the global context. this is not a local recession or a great recession that we just 70 u.s. in fact, we are performing better than any other large industrialized country in the world. neil: as well we should. we are the big gun, but we have to export
to really hurt president obama if it comes to that. but kristen's right, this is about the margins here. if north carolina, for example, was a good example in 2008. you know, obama won the youth vote nationally by 66%. in north carolina, he won it by 74% and he only won the state by 14,000 votes. so if he had won a similar share of north carolina as nationally, he would have lost north carolina. so that's why you see in a state like north carolina, for example, and ohio, the campaign being so aggressive with mobilization efforts on campuses because there's a cushion there, i don't think it will swing the election one way or the other on a macro level, but just around the edges. >> kristen, do you think the demographics shifts this cycle, particularly the increase in young latino voters will make a big difference? >> i think that you can increasingly not separate out the issues of young voters and the issues of the changing demographics in this country. significantly fewer young voters were white than older voters. the demographic shifts are showing up in this group. but you're still see
cnn/orc numbers tonight on the race in ohio. you all know how important ohio is. president obama holding a four-point lead in this new poll, slightly outside the margin of error and significantly right at the crucial 50% mark. so the question is, what is driving the numbers in ohio right now? chief national correspondent john king has some answers. >> well, anderson, that narrow ohio lead for the president is within the poll's sampling error but it is yet another poll showing the president with a small persistent lead in the state of ohio. let's take a closer look at why it is happening in this state that is so important in the pick for president. here's the main reason right here. governor romney gets the republicans. the president gets the democrats but at the moment, in our survey, the president has a narrow lead among ohio voters who define themselves as independents. that is the battleground in a big battleground state, if you win the independents you are likely to win. governor romney close but the president with an important edge among independent voters. there's also an a

(laughter) i love every part of it: the wheels, the kick stand, the little bell. of course, my hero is seven-time tour de france winner and friend of the show lance armstrong. a pioneer in the sport he was, of course, the first man to ride his bike on the moon. (laughter) that's one small pair of shorts far man, one giant bulge for mankind. (laughter) of course, all that is ruined now because the u.s. anti-doping agency is accused armstrong of leading a massive doping program throughout his career. i don't understand why they're coming down on lance for doping! of course you need drugs to compete in a multiweek bicycle race! you need drugs just to watch one! (laughter) and now my friend lance has received the harshest punishment in the history of cycling. >> cycling's international governing body stri
, there is no indication that the obama administration is willing to clearly recognize iran's right to enriched uranium on its own soil. and, therefore, there won't be a deal. even if there's no deal and iran doesn't collapse, some policy elites continue to posit that sanctions and their version of diplomacy is all worth it. it is worth any and because iranians, middle eastern publics, and americans most importantly will come to see that iran's is suffering and inability to get a deal on the nuclear issue is the iranian government's fault. and, therefore, it will be understandable, and even justified for the united states in the end to strike iran militarily. but we should have no illusions about the strategic consequences of an overt war with the islamic republic. any new overt use of u.s. force to disarm yet another middle eastern state of weapons of mass destruction that it does not have, while staying quiet about israel's 200 plus nuclear weapons arsenal, would elevate already high level of anti-american sentiment in the middle east, threaten our remaining allies there, and render their cooperation
right, our political correspondent. as always, thank you very much. >> u.s. president barack obama and his republican challenger for the white house mitt romney are back on the campaign trail with just five days to go until the election. >> some observers think obama's chances for reelection on november 6 may have gotten a boost from his handling of that monster storm, sandy. on that front, the cleanup effort is facing a number of challenges. >> u.s. oil company shell has confirmed, for instance, that the storm triggered an oil spill on a new jersey refinery, which is partly owned by shell, off the coast of new york city. there was at least one piece of good news for new yorkers today. >> some of new york's vital subway lines are up and running, like here below times square, but many subway tunnels are still flooded, and it is still not clear when full-service will return. especially hard hit, the brooklyn and manhattan connections and the financial district. but normal life is slowly starting to return to new york. >> i walked about 5 miles in total yesterday, so i am happy to hav
obama's been president for three years and hasn't fixed anything? >> i think that's right. but i think that they might understand it if it were bill clinton explaining it to them. i think that -- that obama really has been awful at explaining his policies and explaining the state of the economy for the last three or four years. >> i'd like to say again policies do matter deeply. example, for the viewer, next year it's predicted we'll go into recession again if the fiscal cliff is not addressed. and we do go over it. these are decisions that have to be made by lawmakers before christmas time or the new year in regard to tax and sequester and spending. it's there in the books, and it's probably accurate. i think we let ourselves off the hook when we compare ourselves to europe. it's not so great just to be less bad than the others which is where we are. >> i want to first talk about the fiscal cliff. is it going to happen? >> no, it's not. i've been doing this for 43 years, and i suppose i should be a cynic by now, but i'm not. i'm very optimistic that this is going to be handled because

right there. i'm about to talk with a weather scientist on board a plane inside the hurricane. >>> the storm has forced the presidential candidates to rearrange their travel plans. president barack obama campaigns in florida tomorrow. that's away from the storm. and mitt romney has canceled rallies in virginia. he'll be in ohio instead. i want you to take a look at this young lady. this is amanda rubio, the 12-year-old daughter of florida senator marco rubio. she'll spend the night in a miami hospital after a golf cart accident today. she has a head injury and is in fair condition. her dad, the senator, was campaigning with mitt romney when he got the news and headed immediately to miami. >>> we have a lot more planned for you this saturday night. here's what else we're working on. ridiculous rhetoric. >> explain to me why retard is inappropriate. >> from ann coulter to donald trump rn trump, the partisan election blather explodes. we take a stand. the poll, so many of them, who do they call? my cell phone or land line, should we believe them? we have of questions for the poll
, should not be close. okay. barack obama should by all rights by wiping the floor with romney. the fact we are near to electing an investment banker president four years after the financial crisis is astonishing to me. how is it even possible? you know, what made it possible was that the reason barack obama hasn't built up a roosevelt lead and hasn't, you know, won democratic majority and commerce last for forty years in the way roosevelt did, he never took the steps roosevelt did. he never tackled the situation directly. it's not just the bank bailout. that's the biggest failure. it's across the board. there was no direct federal hiring to deal with unemployment. we got a form of national health insurance. but come on, we got bob dole's plan. [laughter] you know. so, you know, okay. i don't know if i answered your question or not. [laughter] >> i can feel myself wandering off in to place i don't really want to be. hopefully we'll get to that in the question time. >> i'm depressed i forget what the question was. [laughter] let me ask you one more depressing question and i think it's time f
president obama's hope and change. democrats and independents did. >> let's talk about those independents. >> those are the ones right now who are the ones you're talking about. those are the ones most disappointed. >> let's talk about something that happened on your show. a caller called into your show and gave you a bit of a warning, right? >> he gave republicans a warning. the same thing i have been doing. if mitt romney wins this time around, i'm an embarrassed if republicans screw it up this time around, i don't know if we'll vote for them again. >> i'm going to give the republican party this warning, that i'm with you by default. but if you don't do something in the next four years, it's just going to flip right back to democrat. >> and, specifically, that warning is for what element of the republican platform? where are they going wrong? >> i think if we vote republican this time around, what we want is mitt romney to govern as a conservative, not as a republican in name only. republicans are longing for real conservatism, smaller government. quite frankly, a lot of republicans wor
